About Cyber STARS

Palo Alto Networks is committed to making a difference by addressing racial disparity in technology, particularly in the Black community, by increasing exposure, access and support to underrepresented students interested in pursuing a career in technology.

At Palo Alto Networks, we believe in uplifting our communities and helping shape future generations. That’s why we’ve created Cyber STARS, which seeks to bridge the digital divide and create opportunity through: education, training, mentorship, and economic empowerment for K-12 students in schools serving large numbers of Black and brown students.
